This is maybe a thought if it is in fact a manned aircraft flying relentlessly over the city.

Federal homeland security chief Tom Ridge has promised to tell Mayor Bloomberg and Gov. Pataki about any future terrorism threats against the city, it was revealed yesterday. The former Pennsylvania governor called the two leaders Tuesday after Time magazine reported that the feds kept New York officials in the dark about an October nuclear threat. "Mayor Bloomberg and I both received a call yesterday from Gov. Ridge assuring us that whenever they have any credible threat, that both the city and the state will be apprised of that," Pataki said at a news conference with Bloomberg yesterday. "I am confident that the communications system already is significantly improved. " Time reported the feds got a tip - which turned out to be false - that terrorists had obtained a nuclear weapon from the Russian arsenal and planned to smuggle it into the city. They didn't tell city officials because of fears of sparking a panic. But a chorus of angry leaders, including Pataki, Bloomberg and Sen. Hillary Clinton

It was a big deal when it happened. They thought if it got out that they were searching for a 10 kiloton nuclear weapon thought to have been smuggled in by terrorists that the panic to get out of the city would be a disaster in and of itself. So, yes they kept it a secret.

There was a thread within the last few days about unusual activity of military (?) planes and helicopters flying low, circling, etc., almost continuously, for several hours and for several days/weeks over the last month. I live in the San Francisco area, in the east bay, and we've been seeing the same thing. Last weekend was really active, to the point where the sound of helicopters and small planes (twin engine?) was literally overlapping for the whole day. They were circling, low, and going back and forth like they were searching (corn row/mowing the lawn patterns). Its started up again today, several small planes and helicopters, back and forth, circling, and overlapping. Really strange, something is up, coast to coast....
